Henderson Genealogy & History

Henderson is an ancient Scottish name dating back to the Pict era. The name is patronymic, meaning son of Henry or the Scottish variation Hendry, and variations include Henryson and Hendryson. By Henderson family history legend, they descend from Great Henry, son of King Nechtan who was king of the Picts in the eighth century, and they were known as great warriors and bodyguards. Two main branches, thought unrelated, were located in the lower Highlands (Glencoe, Fifeshire and Liddesdale) and far north in Caithness. The Henderson motto "sola virtus nobilitat" means "virtue alone ennobles". American Henderson genealogy begins in Virginia in the 1650s.
